Sending out some free copies

Just before the MVP summit I received a nice box from my publisher, Syngress,  which was full of books for me to send out.  So I racked my brains to pick the friends which I would be able to send a copy to.  I have a lot more friends than I have books, meaning that this was a very tough list to put together.  I finally got the list put together, and signed the books and packaged them up.  Later today (Monday) will be a trip to the post office to mail them all out.

It does make a pretty impressive stack in the envelopes, doesn’t it?  If you don’t get a copy (if you didn’t get an email from me asking for your address, sorry but that means that you were probably number 21 on my list when I only had 20 copies to give out), please don’t take it personally I only had a limited number of copies to give out.  For those that are getting copies hopefully they will be there in a few days.



Book available for sale at the Microsoft Company Store

I normally don’t blog about stuff that I’m doing when I go to the Microsoft corporate office, but I just couldn’t pass this up.

While going through the company store someone noticed that my book was available for sale there. No I did the next logical thing, I drug by butt over to that building and took a picture of it, in all it’s glory.

Needless to say that I’m very proud that whoever does the purchasing for the Microsoft Corporate store decided to put my book up for sale. Personally I think that the 20% off sticker takes away from the awesomeness of the cover, but I’ll take what I can get.

If you can’t pick it up at the company store, it is available from Amazon via the link to the right. 🙂
